Please, PLEASE put back the space between the tabs in the Proton version of Firefox. As a web designer, I don't understand how any designer on your staff or any supervisor would okay what looks like a seamless tab bar. The UX is horrible.

I've temporarily changed the about:config to mimic Photon. But I understand you are going to get rid of that ability in the about:config file.

Why do you tweak a decent UI into an unusable one? This is becoming an epidemic. Similar things happen on Facebook and with Photoshop (where "upgrades" make parts of the application unusable—that is, they no longer work).

Updated to version 89 and am not pleased with the visual/graphic interface changes. The tabs are very difficult to read. The new graphic layout fails to clearly identify each tab as a distinct entity or thing to be selected. The text just looks like a long string of text and in some instances of long names on a tab the text just fades away to nothingness.

Please make each tab a "distinct thing by creating a different colored edge on three (3) sides of the tab. Or perhaps have 3 levels of lightening/darkening the table to differentiate it from the background on which it is displayed.

Does the development team have a graphic designer and/or have the changes reviewed by a group of graphic designers?

Please change this please or put the user in charge of how they want it displayed.

Please help.

Apparently my Firefox had an automatic update yesterday. Now I am forced to use and/or select a Theme. All of the themes are basically the same (with different colors) in that there are no longer any lines dividing one tab from another (visually) and I can no longer just close a tab without moving to that tab. THe visual lack of definition between one tab and the next is very annoying, to put it mildly. I just want to go back to the way the tabs looked before this update. How can I do that please?

As a general comment, I'm fine with adding new options as to how tabs might appear -- but only if they are truly "options". I fee that it is a mistake to take away something that many users are comfortable with. And why would the only themes offered all be the same style? What happened to personal choice? I was looking for something like "classic appearance" to get to what I am used to but that doesn't seem to exist.

Help? Thank you.

Hello,

I just installed the new update. The new tab design is totally confusing/unclear to me. Especially the fact that the new tabs don't have a "seperator-line" to the next tab. Thats totally disturbing to me. It's really difficult for me to keep the overview about my normally around 60 tabs now. Is there an option to switch back to the old tabs look and feel? Are there other options to customize the look of the tab bar?

Thanks in advance and Greetz!

Hello, it is enough to search "version 89 visuals" in the help forum to find dozens of topic complaining how awful it looks, and the reduced functionality, content on screen and efficiency.

Luckily in one of the threads I found solution, and links to articles to fix most of the biggest issues:

As a temporary tactic to buy time, you can use a preference to revert the tab bar to its older appearance. This is just for Firefox 89, so you have a month to keep an eye out for the next workaround. To set that up: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box in the page, type or paste proton (or full browser.proton.enabled) (3) Double-click the preference to switch between true (new Proton style) and false (old Photon style) Since this was kept in just for testing, there might be some occasional glitches.

Here the options I changed - set false to all.

   browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled
   browser.proton.doorhangers.enabled
   browser.proton.enabled
   browser.proton.modals.enabled
   browser.proton.places-tooltip.enabled

+ even further reduction of the spaces -> browser.uidensity -> 1

I expect the new Proton view is inspired by touch screens - and is more optimized for tablets, giving more space around individual options, with extra space around them - to make sure you hit the right option with your finger. The downside is we get less visible options on the screen, as now each option takes more space - and it is absolutely awful and less visible for people using desktop mode, and using the more precise mouse and/or keyboard.

And here a list of the problems and annoyances in V89, and why they are a problem (and these are only the ones I noticed so far - attached is a screenshot collage of the issues.

1. Tabs which play audio no longer show that they play audio, unless I hover on top of them - which is a big problem if you have 20 tabs, and are searching which one auto-played some audio. In the previous version each tab playing audio had the audio icon on top of it. 2. My bookmarks take much more space on my screen, and while previously I organized them to fit perfectly to it, now are going outside of it, and I have to (unnecessarily) scroll to find more. 3. On YouTube There was a "delete video" button next to each video in my "watch later" list, and I was able to quickly delete the watched ones. Now I have to click on the 3 dots, and then on the trash bin button to delete. Much slower an annoying. Return to the old vision (sadly I cannot find a way to fix this yet)

This totally failed visualization must IMMEDIATELY be reversed, and you must add option in the VIEW menu - which switches between the old DESKTOP view (version 88 style), and new TABLET view (V89 style).

And it must not be allowed that you disable the browser.proton.enabled option in the next update, as this will force us to use only the new awful view, and give us 3 options:

1. Revert to 88. I have already backed up my profile, and downloaded it, in case V90 ruins the view permanently. This also opens us to security risks - so I can allow this for no more than 2-3 months, in hope you fix this fail. 2. Switch browser. Move to Vivaldi (which I use at work) or Brave, if you refuse to fix the fail. 3. Accept the awful view - not going to happen to me. I am using Mozilla since Netscape, but this fail is infuriating enough to make me switch if made permanent / even worse.

Once again, Firefox is updated, and once again, Tabs are broken.

Could you stop moving them, please?

Tabs belong UNDER the Bookmarks Toolbar. That's where I like to have them, that's where they should be, and for whatever god-damn reason, every major update leaves me scrambling to try and repair Firefox.

USUALLY, they're forced on top, which is awful and unusable in practically every way, and I have to figure out which NEW change I have to make to userChrome.css to make Firefox usable again.

THIS time, they just disappeared. Gone. ONE tab visible; the current. Floating freely at the BOTTOM of the screen, for some fucking reason??!

Yes, I "fixed" it by deleting my userChrome.css, which has them now in the utterly unusable "above everything" position. I guess I'll wait until someone figures out how to repair Firefox --- AGAIN...

Could you just fucking STOP breaking the browser? This shouldn't be a thing. I should not be struck with that sinking "OH NO!" feeling, every time Firefox starts up with a "We've updated" message....

Hi! I do Duolingo on a daily basis. Many/most of the tasks comes with audio, and then... the tab changes size - to show a "Playing". A short time after the sound has stopped, it will change back. I react every time, and it is very disturbing. I really don't need to have such information in the tab/window, because I usually/always hear when Firefox is presenting sounds. I want to find somewhere to turn that "notification" off. Is that possible?

Hello Mozilla Community,

While selecting all my tabs to move some of them to another window, I misclicked and it opens them all twice.

Immediately after I made the mistake to accept closing what I thought was the doublons, but instead it closed them all except for the few doublons remaining.

There were many important tabs opened months ago, that's why I'm asking help.

I don't know what happened but I found this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742) and followed some of the steps.

I managed to recover the recovery_backlzk4 in excellent state from around twenty minutes before the problem, and tried to read the URLs from it with this person's tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html

It did not work, so I don't know what to do.

Can someone explain me if there is still something to do about it or not?

Thank you very much

I have just updated to Firefox 17; I have used it back from version 3, and I feel it's time to say goodbye to Mozilla Firefox!

I have used a lot of other programs, and I don't think there is any other program that updates as frequently as Firefox - every couple of months there is a new version!

It's not bad thing itself, but very, very bad thing is that, each time I update Firefox, one third of my plugins and addons are not compatible with new version! That completely ruins my joy of surfing the internet; since updating from Firefox 14 to current Firefox 17, I have lost at least five addons that were very important for me; the last one, now, is Tab Mix Plus, it's not compatible with Firefox 17, and my Firefox now looks completely different from what I'm used to, I cannot use it!

This has become unbearable any longer: I cannot cope with constant updates of program and addons, and finding replacements for addons that became incompatible! I want to browse internet, and not always to maintain something within Firefox!

You offered me some half of dozen years of excellent experience of browsing the web, but you've become too user enemy for my liking; , so bye, bye, Firefox!
